Great Jobs. Great People.

We are looking for a senior plus level UI/UX designer with 5-7 years of experience, for this contract role until April 2023, where you will help this digital agency by getting stuck into the digital experiences for this recent corporate win.

You will design, build, and support award-winning digital products, campaigns, tools, and services for some of New Zealand’s biggest and best brands in the private and public sector, helping them establish, grow, and nurture their connections with customers. Your goal is to create digital experiences that make the complex easy.

As a UX/UI Designer, you will be well organised, an excellent listener and a creative thinker. You will have worked agency side and understand the ins and outs of working across multiple brands and building strong relationships with colleagues.

You care about the technical implementation, user experience and everything in between, yet realistic and could balance innovative ideas, deadlines, and budget to ensure projects stay on track and client outcomes are consistently met.

This is a client-facing design role, which means you will forge strong relationships with all the clients and their key stakeholders. You have strong written, facilitating and presentation skills, great interpersonal and intrapersonal skills, and the ability to articulate ideas to internal and external audiences.

This client places the value and power of design at the very top of their list of attributes. Design is in their name so it would be hard not to. They also do not take culture lightly. They believe that focusing on their people is the number one priority, as this shapes who they are. They do what they can to find people that share these values. They know that if their people are happy, they produce great work, which makes the clients happy. It is a simple equation.

Our client is looking for people who care. Designers must have the ability to take ownership, creatively solve problems and proactively contribute to the objectives of any given project. This means you must anticipate customers and business needs, advocate for end users and ensure that the final experience surprises and delights.

You are detailed oriented; you stress the pixels above and below the fold. You will have a strong understanding of UX design principles and methodologies and should possess excellent visual and end user interface design skills, as well as human-centred design principals. You will also have experience creating and maintaining design systems and pattern libraries, applied across web and mobile, as well as ideating, designing, prototyping, and shipping digital products.

If you are interested in this role, we want to see real examples of your research and critical thinking, and human-centred designs that incorporate interaction, animation, visual concepts, typography, and imagery. You should have at least 5 years’ experience working within an agency and business.
